MINUTES OF February 16, 1999

The Idaho Board of Chiropractic Physicians held a conference call on February 16, 1999, beginning at 1:10 p.m. The Board members participating in the call were:

Dr. Glenn Moldenhauer, Chair

Dr. Eric V. Boughton, Member

Dr. James Hollingsworth, Member

Dr. Henry West, Member

 

Also present were:

Carmen Westberg, Bureau Chief

Budd Hetrick, Business Operations Specialist

Roger Hales, Administrative Attorney

Ruth Swan-Brown, Administrative Assistant

 

The Board being present, except for Ms. Averill, Dr. Hollingsworth moved, Dr. West seconded and it so carried to enter executive session to discuss the seminar proposed by Dr. Koran for continuing education credit.

Dr. Boughton moved to return from executive session, Dr. Hollingsworth seconded and it carried.

Related to its discussion, Dr. Hollingsworth moved that the hours for Dr. Koranís seminar be approved for continuing education credit with the exception of the one-half hour session regarding chiropractic in the movies; Dr. Boughton seconded and it was carried. Dr. Koran will be informed so he can fill that time with appropriate education material

Dr. Moldenhauer requested Ms. Westberg review state guidelines and advise him regarding reimbursement for attendance (per diem, expenses and enrollment fees) by two Board members to monitor Dr. Koran's presentation.

Ms. Westberg advised the Board of a telephone call from a Dr. Sellars who is vehemently opposed to Senate Bill No. 1068. Dr. Sellars stated his belief that the Board is prejudiced on the subject of requiring a 4 year degree prior to chiropractic college. He also felt the letters of opposition had been disregarded by the Board and that the Bill is "being pushed through." Ms. Westberg noted the bill was following the normal required procedure, and advised the Board be prepared for some opposition when testifying before the Committee. Dr. Hollingsworth stated that the Board did indeed review all responses that were received. Ms. Swan-Brown advised she had attempted to refer Dr. Sellars to a Board member, but Dr. Sellars would not be referred. He was further advised to contact Bureau administration and his Legislators, and that he could track  legislation on the Internet website.

Chair Moldenhauer left the meeting at 2:00 p.m. due to a schedule conflict.

Dr. Hollingsworth inquired as to Ms. Averillís absence at this meeting. Dr. Hollingsworth expressed appreciation for Ms. Averillís insight from a community point of view and further expressed the Boardís wish that Ms. Averill be involved in all meeting discussions, including those involving examinations. Dr. Hollingsworth again expressed, and Drs. Boughton and West resounded, the Boardís need and desire for Ms. Averillís attendance as "sheís just too sharp, we need her input, she is a good human being."

There being no further business to come before the Board at this time, Dr. Boughton moved to adjourn. Motion seconded by Dr. West and carried.

Board approved 4-22-99
